Museum Tour

Larry was in charge of organizing an Historic Walking Tour of our downtown area for the out of town guests for our family reunion. He was well prepared but a light rain changed our plans. We improvised with a more than adequate substitute by taking our guests to a tour of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. A quick phone call made before we left allowed our  group of 17 to tour with a group discount.

This fine  Museum continues to improve! We saw the Patsy Cline exhibit and a large collection of "pie safes" (food cabinets) from the Valley. The "entertaining at Glen Burnie in the fifties" exhibit was spectacular. The best part was  experiencing these beautiful things with my cousins that I hadn't seen in decades!
These are the only two pictures that I took, I was so busy enjoying everything. To our delight, our tickets were for the Gardens as well as the newly redecorated House on the property and the Museum. I was pleased to share this with our guests and loved visiting with them in such lovely surroundings.
